Blank Session on the Bridgewater

It had to happen sooner or later, I had a blank on the Bridgewater Canal.
I was Dead Baiting for Pike at Lloyds Bridge, using tactics that had been successful previously, but today I caught nothing.
I tried using the Blood Red Pike Attractant but that didn't bring any bites.
I saw some Pike attacks but they weren't having Dead Baits at all. I tried wobbling the baits over the areas where the attacks were taking place but with no luck!
It was an unusual day for December, Overcast and cloudy with a light wind but it was warm for this time of year.
I did see a couple of Pike today, another angler turned up, he also put a Dead Bait Rod up, plus he had a lure rod with him, it was lures that proved the successful method today, he had a couple of small Pike (see photo below).
Both Pike were taken on a Rubber Roach imitation pattern.
I used my Shakespeare box with the wheels,using the adaption I made yesterday, it made transporting my gear much easier.

  1. I read your previous posts and you seemed unsure about the best thing to do, so i am happy to hear you sorted your octopluss out, Thats the best idea in my book,
    Unlucky not to catch though, But you made a friend and thats always good when out fishing,
    All the best to you and yours for 2012,
